Okay, so lets all not be surprised that there is yet another scandal involving a political figure. Honestly, when are the leaders of our society going to realize that the public eye is always on them.
Democratic Mayoral candidate, Anthony Weiner’s approval ratings have plummeted after he openly admitted last week that he is still in communication with women online after he quit congress in 2011 due to a sexting scandal. Amid Weiner’s controversy, many prominent Democratic figures including Nancy Pelosi, and campaign mastermind, David Axelrod, encouraged the 48-year-old candidate to call it quits.
Is it any coincidence that his last name is Weiner? Sorry, I had to say it. Don’t tell me you all weren’t thinking it.
If it couldn’t get any worse for the Mayoral hopeful, The New York Timesconfirmed late Saturday that Weiner’s campaign manager, Danny Kedem, resigned from his job stating that he could no longer run day-to-day operations.
Yikes. Honestly, if Weiner thinks he still has a shot at winning the primary, let alone the election, he is dumber than I thought.
Not everyone is upset about the recent controversy, though. The Good Wife star, Julianna Margulies admitted that the scandal is a “gift” to her show and that the sexting scandal has made The Good Wife more true-to-life than ever before.
Margulies plays Alicia Florrick in the CBS drama and during the first episode her character must stand beside her husband as he resigns following a cheating scandal.
I think I have officially lost faith in today’s political figures. It’s just like one after another.
